registrations are now open for our upcoming workshop on "RNA-Seq Analyses in Non-Model Organisms," designed to equip biologists with the skills necessary for successful transcriptome analysis. Here are the details:
Dates: December 11th-15th, 2023
Location: Online (to foster international participation)
Course website: https://www.physalia-courses.org/courses-workshops/course11/
This workshop focuses on exploring gene content and expression in non-model organisms through de novo transcriptome assembly, utilising Trinity software and analysis tools. Participants will learn how to assess Illumina RNA-Seq data quality, assemble transcriptomes, quantify transcript expression, perform differential expression analysis using Bioconductor tools, and functionally annotate transcripts with Trinotate.
Additionally, attendees will delve into the preprocessing of 3rd generation sequencing data and compare resulting assemblies. We will also explore methods for characterizing the assembled transcriptome and uncovering biological insights.
While prior experience with Linux command-line execution and bioinformatics tools is helpful, no programming or scripting knowledge is required. We will commence the course with a review of basic Linux commands and operations.
